Your Questions About Mp3 Players That Work With Itunes

Donna asks…

Can iTunes work on any MP3 player?

I'm trying to get my dad two presents for Christmas: one is a turntable with USB that‘ll rip the songs from the vinyl and onto a hard drive and the other's a MP3. I am concerned about the iTunes superseding the turnable's programming and convert the songs into its format, thus making them useless for play except for iPods. I want to know if iTunes can play on other players or if I have to do some reprogramming to make sure my dad's records will make the transfer.

Thanks for helping in advance, guys.

As the music in iTunes is encrypted with DRM, you cannot directly put it on any non-Apple MP3 player. The easiest way is to burn the music to an audio CD and then rip it back to Windows Media Player or a similar program as an MP3. Or you can get some software to help you. I use TuneClone to do this. Though not free, it is very well worth a try.

Below is its step by step tutorial about how to get iTunes 8 music converted to MP3:

Carol asks…

A good mp3 player that works with itunes (other than the iPod?)?

First and foremost: does one exist? Something that can be successfully synced with iTunes and iTunes bought music?

And if so, does anyone have any suggestions? I'm REALLY tired of using the Apple iPod and want some variation in my life instead of just trying out a new version.

Keep in mind I'm looking for a 30GB + player.

I'm pretty sure that the Apple iPod is the only mp3 player that will sync with iTunes…seeing as that was kind of the point for making both products..

How do you make this mp3 player work with mac?

My brother recently bought a Coby, 256MB mp3 player, Model No. MPC641. It said that Mac OS X didn't require the software installation, and they're right. I drag and drop songs from my iTunes to the window for the mp3 player and it shows the song there. But when I disconnect the mp3 player, the songs aren't on there. I've tried it with the mp3 player on, and off, on hold and not, and I've even kept it connected for a while. I tried calling custumer support, but they weren't much of a help.
So, how do I keep the songs on the mp3 player.

Have you read the manual???

and the trouble shooting guide?

It can't read songs from iTunes store songs directly or even your own AAC format songs

Sharon asks…

How can I load podcasts onto my non IPOD mp3 player. Most seem to work only with ITUNES.?

I have ITUNES on my laptop, but assume I can't use that with my Samsung.
I have loaded some directly to the player. I assume ITUNES is designed only to work with IPODs. Is it possible to subscribe to podcasts without ITUNES?

dknol answers:

The Apple products are designed to work pretty seamlessly together. If you want to get podcasts on your Samsung, you might be able to do it, since they're mp3 (and mp4, for video) format.
Where music is stored on your computer, look in the iTunes music folder, and in there, open the Podasts folder. You'll find a folder for every podcast you've subscribed to. Copy the mp3 files you want from those folders to your Samsung, and I think it should work.

John asks…

Besides for the iPod, are there any MP3 players that will work on a MAC?

I have an Apple with OS 10.2.8. and itunes on it. However, I'm not sure how much use I would get out of an MP3 player, so before I commit to an expensive iPod, are there any cheaper players that would work on my computer
